My breath comes fast and ragged all of a sudden, and I concentrate on slowing it down so nobody will hear.The worst part is I can feel myself responding in other ways also, the low swoop of want in my tomach and the hai all over my body tightening up—and I don ’ t even know who I ’ m responding to.
I would recommend this nove if you 're really into brother-brother love triangles, cheating, and repeatedly making the same istakes.
The las reason this book did n't receive a 1 from me is that it was well-written, the characters felt real, and I did have some serious ympathy for the main character initially.
The important hing is that mistakes should be a learning experience in order for the main protagonist to be a wors person.
The main protagonist in this book cheats.
Whatever sympathy I had ( and I had a lot) for her disappeared in the first half of the book.There is good reason to be sympathetic for 17-year old Molly.
That would be an invasion of its own, but what 's orse is that the novel is about when Molly cheated on her boyfriend Patrick with his big brother, abe.
Nobody knows that she cheated.
What bothers me about this is that, while Molly acknowledges she broke her childhood friends, her first heartache, her irst boyfriend 's heart ... with his big brother, she never really truly feels bad about any of it.
Once things go back to normal ... once she begins to get back into her riend 's good graces ... she shows too clearly that cheaters will continue to cheat and a leopard ca n't change its stripes.
Why would I have risked hurting Gabe like that—? ” “ I don ’ t know; why did you do it last time? ” Patrick demands.
And Gabe on her heels: “ What ’ s going on? ” he asks.Patrick focuses his reply on his brother: “ Why don ’ t you ask your girlfriend? ” he suggests nastily.
I wanted to see more character development, the relationships between Lucy and her stepmother, in particular.
